From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson, comes the first book in a new, action-packed thrill ride of a series - Steelheart. Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics.
But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills.
Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them.
And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father. For years, like the Reckoners, David's been studying, and planning - and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.
He's seen Steelheart bleed.
And he wants revenge.

Sanderson did a great job breaking up the monotony of every day fantasy books with book. You never know what to expect, and are begging for book two by the end. Characters are well developed throughout the book. The Narrator does a good job most of the time with only a few sluff points. It is a must read with WisperSync.
I just finished this book and can't wait to read the next. It is a fast paced narrative with great character development.
One of the best books I have experienced in a very long time. Grabs you from the beginning and takes on an amazing journey highlighting the perseverance and stubbornness of humanity. Wish I could give it six stars. Fantastic narration.
I really enjoyed Steelheart. Sanderson is a master storyteller. I have enjoyed every book of his that I read. Elantris, Mistborn, and now the reckoners have all joined my favorite book collection. Steelheart was a different type of book than Elantris and Mistborn. The contrast shows that Sanderson is equally at home in any fantasy setting. This story definately did not disappoint, and kept my full attention throughout.
This novel is very thought provoking on many levels. In a world where super villains control the world and defeating them feels more like playing clue to match all the conditions needed meet a weakness, You will be entranced from the prelude to the prologue. I highly recommend this title to anyone that likes mystery and action.
I bought this book on a whim. I've never read a Brian Sanderson book but this was worth the credit!
